“Concealed Carryholders Can Be A First Line Of Defense Against Murderous Maniacs Who Attack Places Of Worship”
West Bend, WI – Even before the recent tragedy at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, places of worship have sadly been the site of too many violent confrontations by evildoers who believe those inside will not be able to defend themselves. It’s for this reason that the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) will be offering online training seminars with a specific focus on protecting Houses of Worship throughout the month of November on their YouTube channel, their website, and other social media platforms.
These training videos will feature real people going through real-life potential scenarios and will be posted to the USCCA YouTube channel, USCCA.com, and on social media such as Facebook and Twitter. They will cover topics such as what to do when there is an active shooter in our church and what you can do to prepare, where your security team members should sit in the venue, tips on Deadly Force Decision Making, and the proper size of a house of worship security team, among other issues.
“On behalf of the more than 250,000 members of the USCCA we mourn for the victims and their families, in both Pittsburgh and Thousand Oaks. They are all in our prayers. Sadly, the latest shooting in Pittsburgh was a reminder that too many lives have been lost because murderous maniacs know that our places of worship are soft targets where those inside often don’t have the ability to protect themselves,” said Tim Schmidt, Founder & President of the United States Concealed Carry Association. “In countless situations across this country, concealed-carry permit holders have been the front lines of defense against evildoers because they have the necessary knowledge, training and experience to protect those around them. As a society, we should be having an important conversation about whether we are truly doing everything possible to protect ourselves and those around us. This new training offered by the USCCA will hopefully provide life-saving advice for anyone who has to confront an active shooter situation.”
The trainings will feature Kevin Michalowski, Director of Content for USCCA and Ron Aguiar of Oasis Safety taking church parishioners and the security team through training and putting them through actual scenarios through the use of Stress Vests and UTM ammunition.
The trainings are completely free and will finish off on Monday, November 12th with the airing of the USCCA Live Training Broadcast where a panel of self-defense experts and a lawyer will be taking questions from viewers and discussing the scenarios LIVE.
Those interested are invited to join thousands of fellow responsibly armed Americans at the Live Training Broadcast on Monday, November 12th at 7PM CST. Register below today.
